One floral tribute read: "Lee, I cannot believe that you have been taken from us. We had so many more years to see each other grow old," while others expressed their love to Mr Gadd.

After Mr Gadd's body was found, his Walsall home was cordoned off as forensic specialists examined the scene throughout Monday and Tuesday, while on Wednesday his family released a tribute to the "dedicated father and family man".

“He was a funny, caring and loyal person, and a huge hole has been left in our family and our hearts," they said.

"Our lives will never be the same again."

The 51-year-old spent most of his life living in the Walsall area and is understood to have gone to Sneyd Comprehensive School before serving as a trooper with the Queen's Royal Lancers and later setting up his own plumbing business.

His home is around 150 metres from the Sir Robert Peel pub, where neighbours said they had met Mr Gadd.
